Amira Willighagen, born on March 27th, 2004, in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, is a prodigious operatic singer who captivated audiences at the age of 9 during her appearance on Holland’s Got Talent in 2013. Her stunning rendition of "O mio babbino caro" from Puccini’s opera Gianni Schicchi went viral on YouTube, gaining global recognition. This led to an invitation from renowned violinist and conductor André Rieu to perform with his Johann Strauss Orchestra in Maastricht.
In the finals of the talent show, Amira triumphed with her powerful performance of "Nessun Dorma" from Puccini’s Turandot, winning over 50% of the votes. She later embarked on international performances, sharing her talent in various countries. Amira's debut album, released on March 22nd, 2014, achieved Gold status within three weeks. Amira's musical journey continued with the release of her albums Merry Christmas (2015) and With All My Heart (2018).
Over the years, Amira has steadfastly cultivated her talent and honed her skills, expanding her repertoire to include lesser-known classical vocal works. She is not only a prodigious wunderkind who achieved fame at an early age, but also an ardent and accomplished soprano gracing global stages. We are filled with excitement witnessing the ongoing musical odyssey of young stars like Amira, driven by their dedication and ambition. With eager anticipation, we await the release of more of her enriched productions in the near future.
